Description/Notes: The London Independent School District is a fast growth, high achieving district on the southern edge of Corpus Christi. Over the last 100 years, we have grown from a 150 student K-8 district into a flourishing, high achieving PK-12 district with over 1200 students. In our four graduating classes since the high school evolved, we have sent students to M.I.T, Johns Hopkins, Notre Dame, Rice, Texas A&M, the University of Texas, and many other fine institutions. LISD has four campuses. The district is in the midst of construction and rapid growth with a new elementary set to be completed in November 2019. Starting in 2019-2020, the Elementary will serve grades PK-2, and the Intermediate will serve grades 3-5. London Middle School serves grades 6-8 while London High School serves grades 9-12. London High School won UIL State Speech last year and finished 6th in the prestigious UIL Lone Star Cup. We are currently ranked 2nd in the 3A Lone Star Cup. Our extracurricular, fine arts, and sports teams have all been highly successful. We are a year round school with classes beginning in mid-July, so the timeline on the search is fast.
